Petanque at the Palace!
There is space for around 800 spectators in the stands, and there's a giant screen relaying the matches.
This event, the Monaco Petanque Masters, is the result of a collaboration between the Club Bouliste Monegasque and the Palace and is supported by 'Peace and Sport.'
Entry is free to the square and stands with two semi-finals and the final for professionals taking place today, after which the whole thing will be dismantled.
Peace and Sport organised an informal, pro/am tournament, in which Prince Albert and 32 celebrities were expected to take part. So come back tomorrow and see how His Serene Highness, Prince Albert II plays a mean game of pentanque!
